It’s been a while since I’ve written for the masses.  Not that the masses have been reading what I write but from the masses comes individuals and individuals, when truly seeking something, find it when they’re ready.  My words aren’t intended to be anything other than what they are, different combinations of 26 different letters with one intention, to convey a message.  Lately, I’ve lost sight of what kind of message I’m trying to send.  You see, it’s easy to get mixed up in the problems of today’s world and forget what the point of all this is.  We see the horror’s of society and look for answers and when those answers don’t come we tend to make them up ourselves based off fragments of information that seem to confirm what we think to be the truth; affirmation bias.  Whether we believe what we’re told or what we uncover we don’t realize that we’re not seeking truth. We’re seeking a remedy.  We want our questions to be answered by any means necessary and have a very difficult time accepting anything that goes against what we’re hoping to find.  Oddly enough, despite all of our searching and yearning for confirmation we miss the most important truth of all.  That there is no truth.  All the problems of today have no answers as to why they are because there is no answer.  We can’t point a finger at one single instance and say, “look that’s it, that’s what’s causing this problem” because there is no single cause for what ails us. 

I’ve spent a good part of my days trying to figure out what’s going on with our world and our government and the tragedies that surround us.  I’ve found myself partial to what most would call a conspiracy theory all simply because deliberately unanswered questions tend to reveal more than answered ones.  But then I asked myself, what’s the point.  What’s the point to believing and trying to get others to believe that the biggest threat to our society isn’t an individual or a group of individuals but rather the entity that controls it all.  Does it make any difference to try to show people that arguing for peace while supporting government intervention is a waste of time and resources?  Does it matter that the single biggest threat to government is peace?  The answer is no. It doesn’t matter.  I’m tired of looking for the shadows during a sunny day. I don’t want to fight for truth anymore.  I don’t want to fight. 

Have you ever witnessed something so beautiful that it leaves you in awe?  I mean actual, slack jawed, unblinking, blank expression awe. It’s a rare thing for some. It’s every day for others.  I’ve decided to stop acting like the last truth seeker, always getting enveloped in some theory about how there is a war for our liberty.  Whatever my beliefs may be about the world and the intentions of sullied persons will remain mine. They will reside in me and die with me. Instead, I will dedicate my words to that of inspirational truths.  Truth’s that will not cause people to see others in an evil light but rather see the light that is in others. The light that shines through every one of us, the light that shines through every beautiful thing this physical world has to offer.  If I’m going to change the world one word at a time they’re going to be words powered with absolute truth, that is, truth that extends beyond the limits of our finite lives to the infinite.  Darkness cannot survive in light so if there is to be a reconstruction of the world we live it has to be in the same name of that which we want to see reality.  This world we live in is a test for each and every one of us.  The existence of evil is proof of this.  Without evil there would be no choice.  Without choice there would be no free will. And without free will you wouldn’t be tested every day to choose they easy way of dissent or the more difficult path of peace and absolute truth.  Its tough being the voice of reason.  The sole voice asking for mercy among the masses screaming for blood.  Especially in today’s world, where hate, greed, corruption, bigotry, etc not only exist but thrives, it’s our duty as children of light to be the lover, the peaceful agent, the friend, the Samaritan, etc.  At the end of the day, to paraphrase wise words, we must be the change that we want to see in the world.  There is no one else that is going to do it for us.
